  2. I am from karachi NA 252 /PS 116.(Polling Station BYJ Schoo Jamshed Town Fatima Jinnah Colony) I have Send my CNIC no on 8300 to check my voting information. The reply was block code 412060304 Sr. no.(So and So). but when I went out to cast my vote those references say something else . It was not me registered against those reference provided by ECP on reply SMS.May ALLAH help us? The So called representatives of Karachi (You know what I mean) are all over inside the polling stations and once again same old drill. Rigging is on boss karachi ka kuch nahee ho sakta (sorry to say but no rule of law no serious attitude from ECP and law enforcers including the arm forces. Once again the terror will define or select the winner. I am really angry It not the begging of NEW Pakistan It’s the same old terror culture.
